Webinar: Experimental interventions to facilitate clean cookstove adoption, clean indoor air, & mitigate climate change
Date: February 24, 2021
Time: 10:00 – 11:30 AM EST
Reason for concern: 3.8 billion people (49% of the global population) still rely on traditional energy sources to support household needs such as cooking, heating, and lighting. Due to this, household air pollution is a top-ten risk factor for global morbidity and mortality.
This webinar will provide a summary of research findings from STAR Grant R835421 “Experimental Interventions to Facilitate Clean Cookstove Adoption, Promote Clean Indoor Air, and Mitigate Climate Change” and related ongoing work at Stockholm Environmental Institute and North Carolina State University.
Study objectives were linked to feasibility improvements in clean stove design and dissemination and their impacts on health and climate. They include: 1) assess the acceptability and availability of different stove technologies and fuels, 2) experiment by varying stove price and social interactions among users to determine the impact of these variables on stove adoption rates, 3) measure in situ the impacts of stove adoption on indoor and outdoor air pollution, and climate-forcing, and 4) model the impacts of widespread stove adoption on regional and global climate through a range of scenarios directly informed by data from the field.
Webinar participation is free. For the webinar, a high-speed internet connection is required. Please note that the webinar technology allows attendees to listen to audio through their computer or by phone. Additional log-in information will be provided upon registration.
